Here’s the most shameless left-wing water carrier on television, a man who once donated to Bill Clinton’s charity on camera, knocking amnesty shill Jon Kyl for taking advice from the dark precincts of right-wing talk radio. Would the Democratic Senate leadership ever stoop so low as to solicit legislative input from its own grassroots movement? Why … yes, they would. But that’s “people-powered politics” at work, quite distinct from the Republican “noise machine.”

Like Dean says, he doesn’t even attempt a critique on the merits. And no wonder: wait until you see what suggestion Hewitt made that’s got this Trutherish crank all hot and bothered.
